From gangster rapper to pimp and to Rastafarian, Snoop Lion, formerly Snoop Dogg, has been there done that.
The West Coast rap legend, turn reggae star, opens up to Rolling Stone about his pimping days.
According to Snoop, growing up he dreams of being a pimp and then back in 2003 he decided to make a run for it.
This is what Snoop Lion said:
“I put an organization together,” Snoop said.
“I did a Playboy tour, and I had a bus follow me with ten bi–hes on it. I could fire a bi–h, f a b—h, get a new h-: It was my program. City to city, ti–y to ti–y, hotel room to hotel room, athlete to athlete, entertainer to entertainer.”
“If I’m in a city where the Denver Broncos or the Nuggets play, I get a couple of they players to come hang out, pick and choose, and whichever one you like comes with a number. A lot of athletes bought pu–y from me.”
“I’d act like I’d take the money from the bi–h, but I’d let her have it,” he says. “It was never about the money; it was about the fascination of being a pimp . . . As a kid I dreamed of being a pimp, I dreamed of having cars and clothes and b—hes to match. I said, ‘F–k it – I’m finna do it.'”
“My wife had to take a backseat to this sh-t,” he says. “And I love her to this day because she coulda shook out on a ni–a, but she stayed in my corner. So when I decided to let it go, she was still there.”
You often hear rappers brags about pimping in their songs but Snoop Lion can say he has been a real pimp.
